Preparing Students for a Future Yet To Be Invented

Our children face a future of new, more demanding, and increasingly complex problems

Solving these problems will require agile thinkers with diverse perspectives and life experiences, and an ability to identify and acquire the new, yet unknown knowledge needed to operate and create tomorrow’s technologies and industries. At the same time, our educational system risks growing increasingly out of step with the needs of life and work in the 21st century. Invention Education offers a powerful approach to bridge this gap.

The InventEd community is a network of education professionals committed to cultivating the inventive mindset in everyone

We exist as a platform to share, learn, and build community; we create awareness and communicate Invention Education’s impact; and we facilitate connections and partnerships to broaden the Invention Education ecosystem.
